Riverside Cafe Mosaics

Yesterday I also visited the Riverside Center a new Cafe and Preformance space in NE DC. Here are a few photos of the mosaics that grace the exterior of the Riverside Center. Notice the reflection in the mirror shards of the Marvin Gaye Park across the street.  

Below is a beautiful integration of tile, mirror, buttons, metal keys and colored grout.  Not pictured are mosaics that line the interior edge of the curbs along nearby sections of street. 
I highly recommend a visit to see these amazing pieces of public art.  Try to go on a sunny day to enjoy the bright light bouncing off the mirrors and jewel- like tiles.
